A question for Willx probably? My Overland is still on order, so I assume that it should have the latest software for the RA4. As I am in Canada and we do not have uConnect Access available, do you know if the software updates have a Canada / US version difference. In the future if I want to update from the software you so generously post ( I am a premium member ), would I have any problems? As I do not yet have the vehicle,I am not sure if we see the Apps button or not ( I assume it would be grayed out if we did see it). Can any fellow Canadians shed any light on this?

It is a "settings" button in Canada. Also all updates here are "NAFTA" and for the entire continent. Your truck will come with 13.19.0 most likely but I will not be surprised at all if it has a slightly newer version if it has not been built yet as there are some radio preset fixes in the pipe right now. Your truck will also have a slightly newer Hardware version of the radio that fixes some past problems (same radio going out for service replacements now).

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

I had my update done last week and everything was running fine, except the A/C remote control issue that was not fixed. When I touch the handle, the A/C shuts off as several people are reporting.
But today I was freaking out when I tried to start my GC, all the lights on my dash were lit and several messages that ABS, airbag and several others were not working. The car could move and I didn't notice anything wrong but I was scared and I shut it off. It was weird because I could start my car without pressing the brakes. I went outside and noticed that the brake lights were on, as it seems that the car was not recognizing that the brakes were not pressed.
Then I tried several times to start the car but the same thing happened. I pressed several times the brake pedal until it was hard to press and suddenly the car seems to be normal again. However the malfunction indicator light is still on when the engine is running and didn't go out.
First I thought that was something wrong with the update because I've never experienced something like that before. I bought my car in April and 2300 miles on it and this is the first time. But now searching the forum I noticed some people had the same experience.
Does anybody know if this has to do with the update or it is a completely separate issue?
Willx, it seems that you are logging several issues. Do you happen to know if the cause of this issue has been identified? Is there an easy fix?

Thanks!

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

Search "Christmas Tree".

I can reasure you it is not related to UConnect update in any way and yes your A/C problem needs to be resolved separately.

There are a couple of things that can solve the Christmas Tree thing but so far those issues have been looked after by the dealer properly in almost all cases.

Let us know if you need further insight.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

I had this happen twice before I did any updates, so totally unrelated. The check engine light will go out after a few more starts. Don't panic, but as Willx said, call the dealer and make an appointment.


Willx,

So much for me thinking we were passed this issue.

Thanks Willx. Any idea what problems were addressed with the newer HW ver?

Seems after updating to 13.19 I get the engine light but only in run mode (2 push on start button)
If I then press the break and push the start again to start the engine , the engine light goes away instantly .
I guess that's not normal right ?
I tried to re-apply 13.19 and nothing changed.
AC In remote start works as it worked before the update : I think it remembers last temp and starts blowing cold air , stays on when I get into the car but stops when I push the start button ....completely . So I have to press on auto to get air blowing again . I don't mind this too much but first issue is kinda scary . Anybody got that ? In run mode ?

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

I get the check engine light if the car is in run mode, but not running. I believe I always did, and it seems normal. If the engine isn't running the computer is not getting the readings it expects.

I never pay much attention to the warning lights until the engine is running.

Getting lockups now. Three times today. First one was when I switched from FM to sxm then tried to browse. Stuck. Had to shut the truck off and wait for it to reset. Then again from sxm to nav. Then I switched from FM to sxm then put it in reverse and when I put it in drive the screen went black. Radio worked, I could change stations with the wheel controls but screen was off. Very odd.

But! When I remote start the a/c stays on! Lol yay?

Pfiu if couple more can confirm this ill sleep better tonight
One more thing.. After 13.19 it seems I cannot send remote commands through my iPhone . I get " function is not available , vehicle is not accepting commands at this moment" . Uconnect seems to be registered , for 1 day I got both bing and yelp and media apps now bing is gone and so are the apps (that's what everybody is having so I guess it's "normal" ) . I also got the service 911 but it went away , full bars of signal , GPS and time ok .
Did anybody try remote commands after 13.19? I also had to add that I'm using ios 7 beta 3 ... Hopefully that's not the culprit .
